... fun times....

This Friday is

Sign ups are HERE (thanks Cheryll for hosting it) if you feel like having a bit of stitching on Friday night when lots of others are doing the same....  I stitch most evenings anyway but I do try and do something specific on those nights ... it's a good motivation to get something done since it needs to be blogworthy???


This week we had the big FarmFest which is only a few kilometres from where I live and Narelle visits it annually .... the company Hubz works for always has a stand there so I pay him a visit and Narelle and I catch up for a coffee and a chat and a bit of walkabout....

Forgot to take a picture of us together .... at first we had a bit of a communication difficulty.....

(Narelle might forget to tell me her name but at least she can spell!) - we both had a good laugh

..... when we said goodbye Narelle surprised me with a lovely parcel of goodies...

Very, very spoilt...... thank you so much!


I have been toying with the idea of being a bit more serious about quilting for others..... I do love it so I have set up a page showcasing some of the work HERE I have done for other people (with permission from them) and also one describing a little bit about my process HERE ...

There are links in my sidebar for quick access and of course the pages can be found on the page bar of the blog....

The plan is not to turn my blog into a 'business blog' but just to have the links and show the occasional work I am doing.... this is my play time blog!!

There has been a few enquiries so I though this is the easiest way to let people know .... comments, suggestions and questions all welcome....


This is the finished stitchery (one from Rosalie Quinlans Scandanavian Rose and stitched in Cottage Garden "Lavender") ... I just need to get some coordinating fabric and make it up...

Righto, Gotto Go..... I have a pending swap gift to make..... it requires legs... and arms... and little fiddly sewing ... and Tilda fabric ...... 

..... maybe some coffee to start? ..........
